Pages are interleaved with tissue paper as in the original ediiton. This edition is also handstitched and completed wtih 24K gold edging on the page edges to replicate a style rarely found in modern books.
The book is sold with a wrapping of tissue paper and bound with cord to create a classy Victorian-era presentation for a classy book.
This edition makes a handsome gift or souvenir for anybody who has been entranced by the wonders of Fiordland and Milford Sound.
